An object of the present invention is to pro
vide a dispensing device for containers wherein
25 the opening through which the oil is dispensed is
formed in the side wall oi? the container so that
the container is rendered unfit for re-use in the
manner above described.

dispensing device showing the same as initially
applied to a container preparatory to the form
ing of an opening in the side wall thereof ;.

through which the liquid is to be dispensed;
Fig. 3 is a view showing the dispensing device

During the‘ placing of the container in the
dispensing device, the opening in the side wall
thereof is formed. A cutter I2 is provided for 25
this purpose.
Said cutter consists of a shank
member I3 which is secured by screws‘ i4, it to
the end wall 3 adjacent the handle. Said shank
member extends outwardly along the end wall,
but is spaced therefrom the width of the seat or 30
ledge iii. The width of this seat or ledge i0 is the
width of the double seam joining the container _
end to the body thereof. The outer end of this
shank member I3 is curved laterally and ter
minates in a piercing point l5 which is spaced 35
away from the end wall 9 of the body portion
of the dispensing device. The shank member l3
also carries downwardly and laterally extending
arms l6, l6, each of which is provided with a

side of the shank member I3 leading from the
piercing point into the cutting edges i1, i1, re-'

Fig. 6 is a view of a container opened by a dis
pensing device.
'
The container in which the oil is marketed, as
shown in the drawings,- consists of a body por
'50 tion I to which end portions 2 and 3 are secured
by double seaming as indicated at 4. The dis
pensing device embodying the present invention
is so constructed that the opening through which
the oil or liquid content of the container is dis
55 pensed is formed in the side wall of the body
jects inwardly and overhangs the end wall 9.
This gauge block is substantially in alinement
with the outer vface of the shank member I3 01'
the cutter, and is spaced away from the piercing
point the width of the double seam.
When it is desired to open a container, it is
placed in the chamber formed in the body por- .
tion and the double seam 2 brought into contact
with the supporting ledge ii, while the opposite
end of the container rests against the gauge
block l8.
This will cause the point 15 of the , v
2
2,122,540
cutter to contact with the body wall adjacent
the double seam E. The outer face of the cutter
is curved substantially about a center at the
ledge II, and therefore, when pressure is‘applied
against the container to force ,it-on to the cut
ter, or against the cutter to force it into the con
tainer, the cutter will penetrate the body wall
close to the double seam and will cut the body
wall ‘along lines leading away from the double
10 seam. When the container is fully seated in the
dispensing device, this gauge block I 8 contacts
with the end wall of the container and helps to
hold it ?rmly in place during the dispensing of
the' oil from the container, but at the some time,
leased, the spring will swing the lever 23 so as
to seat the valve. The valve
guided by lugs
36, 36 in its movements. When the button 3|
is forced inward, then the valve is unseated, and
the oil will ?o'sr freely in_between these lugs 35
and through the opening into the spout. If. it
is desired to hold ‘the valve raised, the rod 23
is moved laterally so that theshoulder 33 will
catch beneath the inner end of the gauge block
l8. It can readily be released by a lateral move 10
ment from said gauge block, and then the spring
will close the valve. This valve mechanism for
controlling the ?ow of oil from the dispensing
device may
completely dispensed with, if de
15 it permits the container to be readily removed
or disconnected from the dispensing device.
The penetrating point I5 of the cutter enters
the body wall of the container at the point a,
and the cutting edges on the shank member it
of the cutter will sever the metal along the lines
w-b. The cutting edges on the arms of the
cutter will sever the metal along the lines be-c,
and it is the arms which roll the metal d be
tween the severed lines inwardly and backwardly
25 away from the opening, so-as to form a free
dispensing
opening.
'
.
In the applying of the dispensing device to
the container, the container may be laid on its
side on a solid foundation and then the dispens
ing device inverted and lowered on to the same
so as to bring the double seem 2 into contact
with the ledge Hand the container body into
contact with the piercing point of the cutter.
Pressure is then applied to force the cutter into
35 the body 'wall for the cutting of the same.
The
container may, howevenbe placed in the dis
pensing device while in upright position and
forced down on to the cutter. There is su?i
cient frictional grip between the dispensing ‘de
vice and the container to aid
holding the parts
assembled and the operator can- readily reach
the container and
in holding the same in the
dispensing device as the dispensing device vis
lifted and inverted for therdischarging of the
45 oil from the container into the body portion of
the dispensing device and from said body por
tion through the spout 1 to the chamber where
‘it is to be used. It is sometimes desirable to stop
thev ?ow of oil from the dispensing device, and
here is shown in the present embodiment of
notthe
invention, a valve mechanism for control
ling the flow of oil from said dispensing device.
" At the inner end of the spout there is a valve
seat IS with which a valve 20 makes contact.
65 $aid valve 20 is carried by a stem 2| which is
pivoted at 22 to a lever 23. This lever 23 is
mounted on a fulcrum rod 24 which in turn is
mounted in the side walls 8, 8 of the body por
tion of the dispensing device. Centrally of the’
end wall 9 adjacent the cutter is an extension
25 which carries the handle 6. Said extension
25 is an integral part of the bodyportion of the
dispensing device. Said extension is provided
with a chamber 23 into which the lever 23 ex
tends. 'Said extension is also provided with a
recess 21.
The operator after having placed the 15
the opening in the body Wall thereof, may lift
the dispensing device and container as a unit
in such a way that the spout can be inserted in
the pipe leading to the chamber where the oil 20
is to be used before the flow of oil from the open
ing reaches the end of the spout. From certain
aspects of the invention, however, it is prefer
able to provide a valve mechanism for control
ling the fiow of oil, so that the oil may be held 25
in the body portion of the dispensing device
until the spout is placed in a position .where- it
is desired to dispense the oil. The body portion
of the dispensing device is of sufficient capacity
so as to receive the oil from the container with
30
out causing the oil to contact with the wall, of
the ‘container which is being emptied, thus there
is no' oil wasted by adhering to the outside of the
container.
,
it is obvieus that minor changes in the details 35
of construction may be made without departing
from the spirit of the invention as set forth in
the appended claims.
